I am in complete shock right now! I was going through some post and someone mentioned breast feeding their baby until he was 3 years old!!! I had NO idea people did this and now I am curious how long people usually breastfeed for!  I breastfed both kids until 3 months, I know a lot of people do until 12 months. What about you?

I planned on BFing until 12 months, but he started weaning at 6. :( 5-6 months would be my minimum

With DS2 it was 18 month, with DS3 we're 10 month in, let's see how long we're going to do it.

3 years isn't that odd.  Not many in the U.S. make it that long, but its fairly common in other parts of the world.

I breastfed my older DS until 13 months (milk dried up due to pregnancy so he quit) and my younger DS until just past his 2nd birthday.  If I ever have another, that baby will breastfeed as long as he or she wants.

Ds was a little over two.
Three isn't odd at all.

I could only breastfeed my first and stopped around 7mths. During the great depression a lot of moms breastfed a lot longer because of necessity but these days? No way!
